    Handbiking and the washroom

        I've never used a leg bag before.

        That sounds like a great idea! I've got skinny legs but I've got no shame.

          I use a leg bag now, but before that I sometimes took handcycle into disabled toilets when they were big enough. then climbed from the floor to the toilet

          goodluck

            Did you get dirty from the floor? Do you use a leg bag all the time or just cycling?

              Something about leg bags I never liked. I just bring a back-pak with a couple of enclosed catheters in it, works like a charm. You can usually always find a good spot to drain the vein at when riding.
              If I was meant to have wheels under my ass, what the hell are these legs for?

                I ride around the city and have made a mental list of bushes and queit car parks to hide in when I need a leak.

                  I don't think I would ever scoot around on the floor of a public bathroom. You're much braver than I.

                  I'm with Texas. I pee in bushes.

                      Okay that sounds much better. I can see the problem for gals in the bush.

                        You either have the world's smallest handcycle, or the world's largest restrooms.
                        I bought a set of Wheelchair Buddies. They're great for longer rides, both for restroom/lunch breaks and if you have to do any repairs to your HC. It took a little practice to get the wc on the back, but they worth every penny.
                        Stupidity ain't illegal, but it sure is inconvenient.

                            i do that at home but for me i dont have much time from the urge until its coming out my fire hose, lol. so i would need to limit my fluids which isnt smart or productive while training, hence the pee bag and ext.

                              Ew, I could never do that I hope you use sanitizer once you get on the toilet!! Wear shorts like someone else suggested would be much easier than putting a towel down, transferring to floor & then onto toilet.
                              Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.
